There is so much information out there – including in our newsletter – it can be hard to know where to start. Throw in a bunch of charts and tables and it can feel even more daunting. What am I supposed to be looking for? What do all these codes mean? How do I start to build my portfolio?

Our aim is to help you become well-versed in the basics of the stock market and teach you how to create your own investment strategy to make you a better investor. You will start by learning why they talk about the Dow Jones, iron ore prices and interest rates on the news, and what it means for the stock market; and what it means for you and your portfolio.
